What is it about?
In this study, my coauthors and I counted up every statistical procedure used in 5 educational psychology journals. The most common methods were means and standard deviations, Pearson's r, chi-squared, ANOVA, t-tests, and MANOVA. The most common effect sizes were eta-squared, Cohen's d, and r-squared/R-squared.
